I'm over 18
The next review has long been overdue, so here it is. I'm gonna take a look at Dragon Toy's figure of Suma Maya (Gold version) from "Issho ni Shiyo" from Saitom. It is a cast-off figure with skimpy clothing, so expect some NSFW nudity in this review - it's mostly just boobs, though.

Background:
The figure is based on a character from one of the stories in Saitom's book "Issho ni Shiyo", which also saw an English release from Fakku. The english title is "Let's do it" and the story is called "After School Present". ITEM #458018 also originates from that book, taken from the cover image.

In that story, the male protagonist and Maya have been friends since childhood when the otherwise fairly stoic Maya decides to give him a very special birthday treat by dressing as a demon girl. Of course, the poor boy gets all overly excited by her skimpy outfit and takes their friendship to a whole new level. It's quite ridiculous, really, but also sort of cute and funny for a Hentai short story.

The figure comes in two versions: A normal one matching the blond hair and black outfit shown in the book and a "Gold version" with darker hair and golden clothing. This review is just about the gold version.

The figure is a pretty close match to the original drawing. The head is at a slightly different angle and both the hair and cape of the figure are spread much wider, as if the girl would be moving or a strong wind would be blowing at her. Overall it makes her pose look a little more dynamic and lively.

Her boobs seem to have lost a little of the subtle sagging visible in the drawing, though. They appear a tiny bit larger and less natural. It's not a big difference, but some might be bothered by it.

Overview:
Maya turns out to be a fairly tall figure with long legs and very, very nice curves all around - definitely not a petite, slender ballet girl. She is basically wearing a bikini as well as a (mini-)mini-skirt, exceptionally long boots as well as some shoulder pads, a cape, gloves and a headband. Heart-shaped badges decorate her very shiny leather costume. She's also got a long tail ending in a heart-shaped tip, making it pretty obvious what kind of demon she is cosplaying here.

Seriously - who needs angels when we've got demons like that? The level of detail is astonishing, both in her body sculpt as well as the many tiny creases in her tight leather outfit. Her outfit really is very shiny and practically begs to be put under some nice lighting to really show what she's got to offer.

Although she is technically fully clothed, she seems a little too excited making her nipples show clearly through her top while also squeezing her huge rack with both of her arms. The sculptor even modeled some nice creases into the fabric all around her two little nipple towers. That's probably also why she makes that cute, embarrassed face.

At the back her nicely shaped buttocks and small thigh gap are exposed and present a lovely view. Also of note are the cute red ribbons on her boots as well as the curved tail. Her hair is not overly detailed, but has a very nice dynamic flow to it. Must have been a windy day ;)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/21/2100905.jpeg

Her headband is a nice touch and fits well into the costume's theme. My only complaint would be the slightly sloppy paintjob, although that can barely be seen in-person.

Removing the skirt:
Her tiny skirt can be opened and removed easily - it's made of fairly flexible material, so can easily be bended around her body when taking it off. This reveals her tight thong in all its glory.

I think I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Please be careful not to drool onto your keyboard too much.

Exposing the breasts
This being a true cast-off figure, one does not simply stop at just exposing her thong. Of course, the boobs can also be shown, finally freed from their leathery prison:

As expected, her nipples appear fully erect with large, puffy areolas. They are colored light pink and appear slightly shiny.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/21/2100890.jpeg

Her hands and gloves also appear very detailed, with cleanly sculpted individual fingers and tiny creaves in the gloves.

This also goes for her amazingly detailed boots and attractive butt:

Pre-owned condition
I purchased the figure second-hand from a Japanese merchant quite some time ago, so I don't actually remember what condition she was advertised as. However, she was quite cheap compared to her current aftermarket price and she definitely appears a little damaged mainly in two spots: Her right foot and right leg. There are a few visible scratches and paint damages:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/21/2100898.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/21/2100900.jpeg

I'm not too bothered by these, but of course it's always a little sad to see a great figure tarnished by any kind of damage, however minor.

The parts
There are only three loose parts included with the figure: Two variants for the breast (clothed or bare) and the mini-skirt. Replacing them is fairly easy and all the parts are a tight fit with almost no visible gaps between the exchangeable breasts and the torso.

In case you wonder how she looks without any breast part:

Size
Maya is not a tiny girl. Actually, she's quite tall - taller than most of my other 1/6 scales. I took a few comparison shots with other figures to give you some perspective on the matter:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/21/2100906.jpeg
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/21/2100907.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/11/21/2100909.jpeg

The base
I won't even bother and put a picture in here. You've already seen it on those other shots. It's a black plastic base with some pegs to hold the figure - nothing else to say about it and clearly a waste of potential for this character.

The packaging
I actually forgot to take a picture of her packaging, but it's really nothing out of the ordinary. I'll probably edit it in later, if people want to see it, but right now I just want to finish this review.

Final verdict
Maya is easily one of my favorite figures. There is just something about the shiny leather, the demon girl costume, her tall stature and the ample, sexy curves on her body that draws attention by everyone walking past her. Although quite sexy, she is not a particularly obscene figure and looks great with and without her clothing. This might actually make her a viable choice for anyone not wanting to commit to full-on hentai figures, but still looking for some ecchi fun. Of course, your parents might still be disappointed by your choice.

Personal display choice
I vary this from time to time, but I usually display her fully clothed (if you want to call it that). That actually goes against my preferences with most of my lewd figures, but there's just something about her costume...

Final walkaround
If you want to see the figure from a few more angles, then I've got you covered: Open the spoiler to see even more pictures from her:

Anything else?
Hey, interested in seeing a comparison with the regular non-gold version? Feel free to tell me in the comments and I might do a review or side-by-side comparison with that figure, too.

Of course, if you've got anything else like suggestions, words of kindness, random thoughts or some rage-filled hate speech - please leave a comment as well! ;)

Dang, I'm so impressed with the looks of the outfit on this figure! Those seams and stretching of the gloves! :O And her body as well, those folds at her behind! <3

Thank you for this review!

hikaridranz1 år sedan#44342246your photos made the figures look more enticing than the official pics :p
Thank you! I also liked how this photo session turned out in the end - just a little different take on the figure :)

Heavenly_Otaku1 år sedan#44139856Excellent review once again. Thank you. Pictures came out awesome with that velvet background. Black hair complements the gold dress, I like this version more. I shall acquire this figure.
Thank you! It surely is a great figure to put on one's wishlist or the shopping cart :D

I think I also prefer this gold version. The other one with the black/red leather outfit and blonde hair seems a little darker or maybe more "menacing"!? The gold version looks more glamourous and enticing, I feel.

Gowcaizer1 år sedan#44126443Great review and figure. I was lucky enough to get both versions of her. Dragon Toy did an excellent job with this figure.
Haha, so I'm not the only one going for both :)

Kinda worried about that dulling effect on gold color as said by victorviper.

Great review and figure. I was lucky enough to get both versions of her. Dragon Toy did an excellent job with this figure. She kind of reminds me of Urushihara's artwork.
Thx for the comparison shots and the shot of her without the arms and breasts.

LadyLavellan1 år sedan#44116208The review was detailed while not being overwhelming. I can really see all the detail in her outfit as you mentioned! Not my kind of figure but after reading through I have a new appreciation for her. She looks great. Thanks for the review!
Nice of you to say that. Of course not every figure is for everyone, but I feel one can still appreciate the good craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into most of these plastic figurines. :)

victorviper1 år sedan#44117621If you scan preowned figure listings regularly, it's not uncommon to see figures with gold painted parts with a disclaimer that the color has started to fade. It's not something that's destined to happen by any means, but you do tend to see oxidation and color fade disproportionately with gold paint. My experience is that sometimes the gold color will become more bronze-like over time.
Oh, that sounds rather unfortunate. I did not know that.

murdoch1 år sedan#44115804Wow what timing! I just recently bought the blonde version, which I absolutely adore, and I was super curious to learn more about the brown haired variant..thank you for reviewing her!
Haha, thanks, you're welcome. I'll see what I can do about the comparison. They both look fantastic, that's for sure! :)

Can I just say that I love the lighting for all those shots and the red curtain backdrop is stellar? Very fitting for this figure.

The review was detailed while not being overwhelming. I can really see all the detail in her outfit as you mentioned! Not my kind of figure but after reading through I have a new appreciation for her. She looks great. Thanks for the review!

Looks like she turned out to be quite a stunner as well! <3 My gosh she looks so awesome displayed next to Ayaka *0* ( ITEM #549875 )
You mentioned writing out a comparison between the two variants- I personally think that would be a super interesting read! :]
